3D simulation technology relates to the technology used for various purposes to make things look real but not deal with real-time. It is a booming technology which is growing rapidly in every other field including education too. Simulation is an artificial representation of any kind of complex real-world procedure with efficient reality at a duplication level keeping in focus regarding immersion, feedback, reflection, and risk reduction in the same kind of real-life experience.
A common term used in the simulation industry to describe the degree of the real-like and technical complexity of models is Fidelity. This defines the context that the fidelity or representation of the model is directly proportional to the complexity of the task. This directs that more complex a task is more is the fidelity of the model. Low-fidelity tasks can be developed easily and rapid updating is possible where high-fidelity tasks cost more. Also, high-fidelity models are more flexible when compared to low-fidelity models when applied to different uses.
Not all the tasks need to be modeled in high-fidelity; many models can be created using the low-fidelity or mid-fidelity level for better performance depending on the task at hand.
Simulation in Education
We have come a long way from learning facts in books to doing practical in classes and labs every day or at least learning through other ways digitally. Today, the educational industry believes in the field of learning through more hands-on experiments and learning. Mainly, in the field of medical learning where the students can learn and understand more about the human only by working on human bodies literally.
However, applying the theorems and experiments they learn in lectures cannot be put under practice by students on a real patient. Doing something like that is not acceptable by society and could also be called under legal and ethical issues. This is where simulation comes in to play for medical aspirants.
Simulation, as you already know, is a life-like representation of a complex real-life procedure with a normal fidelity whose goal is to provide learning with hands-on experience through immersion, reflection, feedback, and practice without risk to real-world experience. It is not just a technology but a whole new technique to promote more experimental and real-life learning to students. This kind of simulation not only benefits the learner but also the management and hospital.
- It reduces the margin of error as all the procedures would already be practiced by the students.
- Patients for a particular topic of learning may not always be present for learners.
- Some clinical situations are needed to be dealt with immediately which gives newcomers or students no chance to treat them.
- The level of professionalism in the field has increased to a very higher level with an increase in the healthcare issues and needs of doctors and regulations.
- This technique improves the practitioners from old-school learning to modern sciences where they are ready to perform anything they majored in.
3D Simulation in Southwestern University:
Southwestern University is one of the most renowned academics to pursue MBBS in the Philippines and also all around the globe. They are recognized by the WHO and MCI as an institute.
We are talking about this university because they are coming with a plan to introduce 3D simulation for medical aspirants in their college. They are devising a strategy to motivate students and eradicate the problems faced by learners of not finding enough patients to practice on.
They want their students to perfect every skill they would like to possess before they pass-out from their institute. This helps students to understand all the concepts with life-like practice without putting any lives in danger. This is the digital education everyone would love to learn from.
So, if you are thinking about where to study MBBS so you can practice enough because any MBBS aspirant without real practice cannot become a doctor, then Southwestern University is the place for you. 3D simulation technology is easy, helpful and detailed. So, why wait for patients to perfect your skills when you can perfect your skills and then treat real patients.
